of the fiscal cliff. because the default, if nothing happens, is that the debt ceiling is not raised. what that means it doesn't mean, as some who would demagogue this issue suggest, i doesn't mean a default on our debt. whatnot raising the debt ceiling would mean is a partial government shutdown. roughly 40 cents of every dollar the federal government spends is borrowed. if you don't raise the debt ceiling, that 40 cents is temporarily stopped. now we did that in 1995. we didn't default on our debt. >> woodruff: right. the result was balanced budgets and some of the greatest fiscal responsibility was seen we've seen in modern times from congress because fiscal conservatives stood together and said we need to be responsible. >> woodruff: let me ask you about a couple of other issues. that is guns. you're a long-time proponent of gun rights. you're the father of two young girls ages 4 and 2. after those terrible shootings at that h elementary school in connecticut, have you changed your views at all on how available guns should be especially the high-capacity rifles? >> i think every parent was horrified at what happened in newtown connecticut. to see 20 young chi

they lose as far as the debt ceiling gun control or immigration. it's smart by the white house to draw the republicans in, and while the republicans are focusing on one issue it's like whack a mole you address something else. >> john: what are the odds they do anything about climate change? >> we haven't seen--again maybe we'll see a different approach in the second term, but having said that there is nothing from obama's past that shows he wants to go out and do these controversial things. carbon tax anything dealing with the environment, climate change, i would be surprised. if he's going to cause the freak out with the executive order of gun control, that takes up so much oxygen, and you can only have so many of those freaks outs, and he can't do it seven or eight times. >> john: i think america has seen enough g.o.p. freak outs. >> they want to do something about climate change, but it's only when the economy is humming well when we ask companies to cut down on emissions. but right now there is no room to maneuver on this at all. >> john: getting the cab cabinet nominees confirmed, gun control where is he the most vulnerable on? >> i think they're doing thi

ceiling in march. there's going to be the continuing resolution that expires on march 27th. when i look at things like the debt ceiling or credit rating of the united states, that's a non-issue. you're right. that's the thing we should have learned back in august 2011. people don't pay attention to the credit rating agencies anymore, especially when it comes to sovereignty debt. >> if they cut enough time it starts to impact what the government has to pay for their debt. >> look at every institutional investor -- >> if it goes low enough some treasuries couldn't buy those because the rating wasn't high enough for them. >> if you look at every single institutional investor, they define that a u.s. treasury security is a separate investment independent of its credit rating. >> because it implies a aaa credit rating that it doblt even have right now. >> interest rates that the united states pay is what the united states want to charge it. >> why rate? >> i agree. >> it's pointless. >> they shouldn't. >> can we look at this another way for a minute? let's look at this another way. let's talk about this country being able to pay its long-term bills. forget what a credit agent says about

be going on, a number of issues going on, gun control, the debt ceiling debate, immigration reform, another issue. you've been very outspoken on it. it will come up in the next few months hopefully. the way you talk about immigration, mr. mayor, the whole debate about immigration reform is on the scales of what kind of burden does immigration pose to the country, how do we manage the burden. you said, it's not a burden. a jolt to our economy. >> most knowledgeable people would agree immigrants create jobs here. immigrants are a thousand times more likely to have a business, don't take away jobs, create jobs. seasonal workers take jobs from nobody and do things americans won't do and create jobs down the road. the economic benefits of having immigrants around the world, the countries starting to eat our lunch doing it because they want immigrants and we are trying to keep them out. the issue where it gets controversial, family reunification, you're here an want to bring your family over. the family reunification people are trying to hold the economic immigration changes hostage until they get some of that

debt ceiling itself is unconstitutional. because it questions the validity of the national debt. the debt that congress has already racked up. >> no. it questions the appropriateness of raising the debt. that's the issue. jimmy, i want to go here. is there anybody on the republican side who is saying we want to default on the debt? is there anybody on the republican side that says we're not going to raise the debt ceiling? >> no. nobody thinks that's a good idea to default on the debt. going past the debt ceiling i think that's not a great idea. but theoretically there's enough money coming in to pay the debt. you could pay people getting social security. that's really not the point. the point is whether there is at some point are there -- i think there should be actual spending cuts. listen. cut spending today. cut spending tomorrow. but cut spending sometime somewhere. but we're not doing that. >> kathryn, that's the issue. that is the issue. boehner has said one for one. that's his line last year. he got it. although they didn't make the sequester yet. that's all. one for one. why is this wrong? we never want to cut spending. we want platinum stones, platinum cards, platinum gems. we want phony i.o.u.s th

] >> remember that timothy geithner said that the debt ceiling was january 31. just trying to mesh that with the fiscal cliff. and the republicans said no, separate issue. it is also a separate issue from the sequester. and what the republicans have said and what they told the president to a year and a half ago. the president lost, but likins won on the question of if we wanted to raise the debt ceiling because obama is overspending. you have to cut spending dollar for dollar by the same amount. speaker boehner has reiterated that that is enough. so has mitch mcconnell. the president of united states can stand up and say that i lied to you and i said i wanted to reduce running. i like you, and i said i was going to offer government reforms. but if he does that, i think he isn't is in a very weak position and democrats are killing themselves if they think that the american people want to continue overspending. and the debt that obama is running out. we can give the president a month of debt ceiling increase or six months or year. then you have the continuing resolutions. because the democrats have not passed the budget or written a budget in more than three

president the authority to increase the debt ceiling unilaterally, and another option that is floated is to essentially mint a platinum coin worth a trillion dollars. this is a idea that dates back to a 1997 appropriations bill that deals with the issue. the white house saying they do not believe that this gives nem the authority to mint a trillion dollars coin. they feel they need to go through congress to get the debt increased. there's question how it will take effect. president obama said he is not going negotiate with congress. so it raises the question, if he is not going negotiate congress, how are they going to get it done? congress is digging in and house republicans saying they are not going to aagree to an increase in the debt limit unless it's equalled by dollar for dollar spending cuts and depositions saying they are not signing off on that, they believe it will take a huge bite out of sbeel s entitlements and that is all coming as the noungsment of a appointment of a new head of treasury, secretary of the treasury, former chief of staff, jack lew, some say he is a big spend democrat, they feel they cannot work with him. white house said he is exactly in line with what the president wants to do. which is to make sure that any
